Intense Venom—in modicum
Gushes past red blood obstacles,
Bathing nerves to zap the brain plum
And racing to stop heart’s pulses.
Serpentine essence delivered
To protect itself from danger;
From dark crawler’s fangs uncovered,
To cause mortal wounds on stranger.
From modicum flows saving grace;
Those drops of serpentine venom,
Grow enzymes to naught a blue face;
Hence, by death’s door does life blossom.
From darkness comes wisdom and light,
For, dark sense wins when bright one’s lost;
To know truth sublime, seek mind’s might;
Beware of smiles that come with cost.
